Web3 is going just great [English]  -  International group of law enforcement agencies shuts down ChipMixer

 -  Mars 2023 - 

Law enforcement from the United States, Germany, and the European Union worked together to take down the ChipMixer cryptocurrency tumbler, which they allege had been used to launder $3 billion since 2017 related to "ransomware, darknet market, fraud, cryptocurrency heists and other hacking schemes". The US Department of Justice also charged an individual with money laundering, operating an unlicensed money transmitting business, and identity theft in connection with the project.

According to the US DOJ, ChipMixer had been used to process, among other things, proceeds of the massive March 2022 Axie Infinity hack by a North Korean cybercrime group.

US law enforcement seized two domains and a Github account tied to the organization, and German law enforcement seized ChipMixer's back-end servers and $46 million in cryptocurrency.
